"If you took the decision to carry out an illegal military adventure - and we do hope that you will come to your senses - well then you will have to bare responsibility for it", said Nebenzia.

Hmaidi Abdullah, a Syrian political analyst, told Xinhua the US threats of military action on Syria were "serious", saying they reflect the USA desire to undermine the Russian-Iranian-Syrian alliance, which is gaining the upper hand in Syria.

Syria denies using chemical weapons.

OPCW inspectors have been attacked on two previous missions to the sites of chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

The United States has asked the UN Security Council to vote Tuesday on its proposal to set up an inquiry to investigate chemical weapons attacks in Syria, but the measure could face a veto from Russian Federation, diplomats said.

He warned the United States and its allies against launching a military action in Syria, bypassing the UN.

Real win after stunning Juventus comeback
Buffon said in June that this would be his final season unless Juventus won the Champions League . Buffon added: "We have to play with spirit and stay together as a group".

The politician said the Syrian government was expecting a limited US strike, similar to the one on Shayrat air base past year, which came after an alleged chemical attack on a rebel-held town in northern Syria that killed dozens of people. "Probably after the fact".

Western leaders are mulling possible responses, including Macron and May.

Syrian opposition activists, rescue workers and medics allege that bombs filled with toxic chemicals were dropped on Douma, in the Eastern Ghouta region, near the capital Damascus, by Syrian government forces.

Russian Federation is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's most powerful ally. "Everybody is going to pay a price".

The president's new national security adviser, John Bolton, urged Trump to skip the trip, an official said.

Trump has pledged a "forceful" response, and has spoken of numerous military options.

Trump later suggested the "bad blood" between Washington and Moscow has been caused by Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller's ongoing federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

California Governor Jerry Brown delivers his final state of the state address in Sacramento, California, U.S., January 25, 2018. McGuire says other troops who are deployed will have tasks in engineering, transportation, surveillance and communications.

Nebenzya said the United States and its allies didn't really want an investigation to assign blame for the attack in Douma, because they already have concluded that Syria and Russian Federation are responsible and should be punished.

This is the 12th time Russian Federation has used its veto power at the council to block action targeting Syria.

Seven Iranians were among the estimated 14 people killed in the missile attack, and a senior Iranian official visiting Damascus said the attack "will not remain unanswered".

The announcement follows Trump on Monday calling the suspected chemical attack in Syria over the weekend "atrocious" and saying the United States will make "major decisions" about its response over the next 24 to 48 hours. "Either way, the United States will respond".

As tensions between Russia and the USA continue, a senior Russian lawmaker said earlier Tuesday that a US strike on Syria could trigger a direct military clash between the two countries.

The US State Department said Mr Johnson and his Washington counterpart had discussed "potential further steps the US and United Kingdom governments might take in coordination with other partners".
